Artist Meet and Greet: Restored Memory Wall

Friday, August 6, 2021

Meet members of the team that recently restored the Memory Wall of Peace and Love during the First Friday Gallery Hop. Artist Gregory Warmack created the wall in 1999 by covering most of the wall’s surface with cement and embedding hundreds of objects, keepsakes and artifacts donated by local citizens. The top of the wall included a series of hand-made concrete sculptures of birds and figures. In the ensuing 20 years, the wall deteriorated from exposure to the elements and suffered from vandalism. Some sculptural elements crumbled and others were removed. Warmack died in 2012. However, using photos of the wall taken after it was completed in 1999, a team comprising David Brown, Aaron Gibbons, Derrick Monk, and Duncan Lewis recently restored the wall. The team will be at the Memory Wall to discuss their project during Gallery Hop, Friday, Aug. 6, from 8 to 9 p.m.
